When suddenly he was

First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!
Thank you for your kind comment. They are
Few and far between and this is appreciated.
It seems I have had ideas that come to mind
Usually surrounding childhood issues.
That is how it started for me but then I
Started writing in a different direction,
Reading spiritual stories and expanding on
Them in poetry form. I need to read what
Others have written to get the inspiration.
I try to write them as they come and it helps
To walk away for a time then return and it seems clear what should be repositioned
And written, sometimes.
I think if it takes you 15 or 20 minutes to
Begin writing it is not a waste of time,
It is simply a time to reflect and allow
The thoughts to take form. 15 or 20 minutes
Is very little time to start writing. I admire
You for that. I hope this helps and again
Thank you for visiting my website. I wish
You the best in writing.
